An Advent calendar is a special calendar which is
used to count or celebrate the days of Advent in
anticipation of Christmas. Some calendars are
strictly religious, whereas others are secular
in content.

Today, most advent calendars are made for children.
Many take the form of a large rectangular card with
many "windows", one of which is opened every day
during Advent. In less elaborate calendars, each
window opens to reveal an image, a poem, or part
of a story such as the Nativity story itself. More
elaborate Advent calendars have a small gift
concealed in each window, such as a toy or a
chocolate item.


The origins of the Advent calendar come from
German Lutherans who, at least as early as the
beginning of the 19th century, would count down
the 24 days of Advent physically. Often this
meant simply drawing a chalk line on the door
each day, beginning on December 1. Some families
had more elaborate means of marking the days, such
as lighting a new candle (perhaps the genesis of
today's Advent wreath) or hanging a little religious
picture on the wall each day.
